I tried Firefox and get the same result.

    Once I click on a thread, the view is fine, no scrolling needed.

    Thanks for trying to improve the site!
    See if that helps. If the consensus is that it does, I'll leave it on the right side instead for those of you with low resolution.....

    Thank you for the suggestions.

    My monitor resolution is set at the highest it can be.... 1680x1050. It's a ViewSonic, used with a MacMini.

    I tried closing the statistics box.. you do mean closing the one at the bottom of the main window, correct? I closed it, logged out, went to another site, came back, and the statistics box at the bottom was still "shut" but the boxes along the right are still showing when I scroll.

    It's working better for me with the boxes on the right. I understand, though, if they need to go back on the left to please the most people. It only effects the main page, so it's not that much hassle.

    Oh --- it is better on my iPhone with them on the right also.

    Thanks again!!!

    Yes, that is correct.

    If your resolution is 1680x1050 I don't see any way that you could have a horizontal scroll bar unless you have the window sized way down. How about a full screen screenshot...

    I didn't think about his resolution. Mine's 1280x1024 on a 19" monitor and I just roll off the right a bit with the window sized down to show my desktop icons on the left.

    Must be my wide aspect flatscreen. I turned it down to 1280x1024 and can size the window down to 3" from the left side and still not have a horizontal scroll....

    Hmm, must be. I have a standard 19" that IT gave me (Acer AL1912). I've tried different resolutions and 1280x1024 puts my desktop centered in the monitor. I have a small column of icons on the left side, which leaves the rest of the monitor for windows.

    Actually I'm quite used to the screen width. If I close some of the boxes on the DC main page everything fits nicely.

    Thanks for the new background, looks good.

    What a disappointment. I read the title and thought this thread was about me.

    for anyone having a problem w/the width, if you download the browser opera then click view on the tool bar then click on fit to width it will fix it.

    i keep opera on my desktop in case i ever have a problem w/Firefox which is rare. opera is an excellent browser though.
